dramatic speech at the u.n. he had a drawing and a red line and said if iran amasses that amount of enriched uranium which would be number to make a bomb we have to strike. would you and governor romney put the redline at the same place that netanyahu did. >> what we have said is a nuclear weapons capability is what we have to stop. we have to speak with credibility. that means a romney/ryan administration one of credibility where we don't establish daylight between our allies, especially israel. when we say what we are going to do it is believed. that is the issue here. the ayatollahs by virtue of the conduct don't believe the president. >> chris: but your red line is not any different than the president. >> the problem is it is built upon a million of noncredible actions. i have been in congress for a number of years and we he have been fighting for tough crippling sanctions on iran. the administration resisted us. tim geithner tried to stop us from doin doing this until overwhelming support when the administration came onboard. when we send the signals overseas the ayatollahs
and a difference, netanyahu, the israeli prime minister gave a dramatic speech at the u.n. and had a drawing of a bomb and drew a red line. >> saw that. >> chris: and said if iran amasses that amount of medium enriched uranium, enough to make a bomb, we have to strike. would you and governor romney put the red line the same place, that benjamin netanyahu did. >> what mitt romney and i said, is a nuclear weapons capability is what we have to stop. now, we have to stick with credibility. that means, a romney-ryan administration will be one of credibility and we don't establish daylight between the allies, especially israeli and say what we'll do, it is believed. that is the issue here. the ayatollahs, by virtue of their conduct, don't believe the president when he says his interest is in stopping -- >> but, you wouldn't put the red line anyplace different -- >> the president moved his rhetoric a bit to look more like ours and that is good but the problem is, it is built upon a mountain of non credible action. i have been in congress a number of years and we have been fighting for tough sanctio
action. at the u.n. he used a prop to drive home his point. >> a red line should be drawn right here. before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> reporter: while some have accused the prime minister of pressuring the president to help gop nominee mitt romney, mr. netanyahu has said his actions are not tied to the u.s. political calendar. the white house downplays any friction between the two leaders and brushes aside criticism that there was no face-to-face meeting. >> the president has met with and spent time on the phone with prime minister netanyahu more than with any leader since he took office. and that is reflective of the importance of and the closeness of the relationship between the united states and israel. >> reporter: the white house would not say if the two leaders talked about the so-called red line, which of course is a key issue. and no specifics on how they will stop iran from obtaining a nuclear weapon. but they did agree to "continue their regular consultations on this issue." wolf. >> dan lothian reporting from the whi
, but it's not nearly what most americans think it is. >> and as a matter of fact, while he was at the u.n., he was told that one of his top aides indeed was arrested for making a comment that apparently insultdinsultd -- insulted the supreme leader. he called for a red line saying that diplomacy hasn't done anything to stop it. sanctions not so much. even though they are proving effective. at one point, benjamin netanyahu really drew a red line, his own red line. take a look. >> here are the facts. where should a red line be drawn? a red line should be drawn right here. before -- before iran completes the second stage of nuclear enrichment necessary to make a bomb. >> what is really so fascinating about this is that the iran supreme leader has not yet made the decision whether or not to build any sort of an atomic weapon, but clearly that is what everybody in that region is worried about. are we looking at a targeted military strike, another war, if, in fact, iran does go over that 90% mark that netanyahu is talking about? >> well, i think you're right to say if they were suddenly to anno
think there are certain political overtones. how else -- how else could you trot out our u.n. ambassador to say this was a spontaneous demonstration. >> maybe he thought that at the time. >> five days later? that doesn't pass the smell test. it was either willful ignorance or abysmal intelligence to think that people come to spontaneous demonstrations with heavy mortars and the attack goes on for hours, and there were warnings, as you know, because cnn put out part of chris stevens' diary. things are going south all over the world. look at this morning in iraq. we've got a miserable failure in iraq. it's unraveling. afghanistan, more insider killings, because this president doesn't believe in american exceptionalism and keeps telling people we're leaving. have you ever heard him say victory? finally he said something about syria, but now we're going to give them communications equipment, which does very well against attack airplanes and helicopters and artillery and tanks. >> you're being sarcastic here. you want to give more? >> of course, we need to arm them. the iranians have admitted
, the administration went out, probably too early with an incomplete report from the u.n. ambassador susan rice on "meet the press" and other programs and now are being called to task. the security in benghazi was very, very thin. and we have the situation where there was clear -- there were clear warnings. what does the administration do? how do they handle these inquiries? >> first of all there's an investigation under way. it's an accountability board that's looking into it. the first thing is, they probably need to pick up the pace because in the first place, you have people really rushing out to try to give an account and often the first counts are wrong. and so i think they've taken a hit for that. now they're going to take a hit unless they get moving on the accountability review board and try to get something out there that is -- explainable. and frankly i think there are a lot of issues there to look at. the question of security, the question of, you know, the whole issue of whether benghazi was butnd down. i don't think this is really a presidential issue. i mean the notion that the p
, this group did attack the u.n. building in algiers some years ago which is, you know, somewhat defended. so they do have some capacity. but i think we need to be careful, you know, this is not al qaeda central suddenly capable of attacking the united states. >> sure. >> reporter: this is more a group that has traditionally been kidnapping westerners, targets of opportunity. they are expanding in mali. i think the white house is doing the right thing by taking the threat seriously. go ahead. >> peter, finally, we know just looking at the big picture islamists have been suppressed for decades by arab dictators. now you have these overthrown dictate ors and militants rushing to fill this void, this vacuum here. what is the state of play? >> reporter: you can make an argument it's not an accident that so many came from countries that have benedien dictatorship. it reduces the amount of militancy in the region. which isn't to say there won't be complicated in counies like libya going forward. at the end of the day more democratic middle east is going to be reduced the appeal of these kind of jih
ago came to new york city for the u.n. general assembly. he did meet with world leaders last year decided to meet this year with zero world leaders and jetted off to campaign. he should have met with benjamin netanyahu, he should have met with the president of egypt and talked to him about maintaining security there and keeping americans safe in egypt. the white house response was he has a telephone he can call the leaders. why doesn't he use the telephone to call the view and walked to whoppi goldberg over the phone and take that time and meet with benjamin netanyahu and the president in the middle he's, our embassy is on fire, our president times find for the view but not leaders. he has not met with his jobs council since january. he's blown off his jobs council his january. this is dereliction of duty. >> slacker in chief is your summation in the piece. you tell me there is more you'll be writing about. they'll check it out. >> thank you very much. bill: 111 minutes befor 111 minutes before the hour. the first presidential debate goes down in denver tonight. it could all hinge
of the fire. >> the secretary of state hillary clinton mentioned that there's this u.n. soalled friends of syria, and they pledged more than $50 million for the opposition, whether it be in weapons or whether it be to help refugees, et cetera. has that message gotten to the opposition. if so, what is their reaction and when do they expect that assistance? >> well, fredrickfredricka, the has gotten to the opposition, but the opposition is grateful for this assistance, and they have been. the u.s. and other countries have given, you know, have given money and aid in the past, but the opposition, and especially the rebels have said from day one what they need more than anything is they need more artillery. they need more firepower. they need anti-aircraft guns and anti-tank guns. they're running low on supplies, they don't have those supplies. the u.s. since they started aiding the opposition, has said they don't want to further militarize this conflict. they only want to send in nonlethal assistance, things like satellite phones and computers or food or medical supplies. and so you have t
groups. ambassador john bolton is former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. and fox news contributor. big picture here. what do you think the cost is to the united states on the world stage that we're continuing to discuss this infighting who knew what when and not going out and getting the people that committed this act? >> well, i think it shows that there's desorganization within the state department, within the administration, about exactly what happened and i think that is a signal of vulnerability potentially at other embassies in the middle east or around the world. i think the consequence we need most here we need to find the people who actually perpetrated the attack and either eliminate them or get them in custody and start questioning them. that's potentially on the way. of course the administration is leaking out today in the press that they're about to do that, another security violation while we're on the subject. but certainly the way the administration has handled itself in the aftermath of this tragedy has not covered it with glory. jenna: how would we appropriately go an
, the door is now open in a way on foreign policy that it wasn't before, because of the u.n. ambassador being killed. i think obama would love to go there. i think he's one of the best prepared people. >> i think the leadership question tonight, if it's -- on domestic policy, is going to be the deficit issue, the fiscal management of the country, and in talking to romney advisers, that's sort of the key thing they are going to point out in terms of leadership, talk about commander in chief at the next debate. but this debate is about fiscal management and who is going to be better for me in the next four years. >> very quickly, david. >> first 45 minutes of this, the most important 45 minutes of the campaign, all about the economy. i've known jim lehrer for a long time. he won't be constricted by the -- he could well go into libya and what's been happening in the second part of the debate. >> not just the first 45 minutes are important, after the debate, our job, the fact checking, reality checking, wolf, a little bit on that. >> we certainly do, anderson. a very impressive reality check team
, they trotted out the u.n. ambassador who said this is a spontaneous demonstration bread by a hateful video. now, that is one of the most disgraceful performances i have ever seen. first year cadet at west point would have told you that that was -- you know, there is -- people sitting around benghazi, grab your mortar, honey, we're going to a spontaneous demonstration. >> gretchen: but senator, looking ahead then to these next debates, i don't know if the president will have it any better off because foreign policy, when we start talking about this, when mitt romney starts talking about it or the moderator, there is going to be a lot of questions to answer and it may be the first time that the president is forced to answer questions about libya. >> well, he did answer questions about his foreign policy. remember, he just said there was a few bumps in the road. iraq is unraveling. al-qaeda is coming back. afghanistan is in total disarray because of this killing of americans by afghan military people and it's because the president keeps announcing we're leaving and it's overruled his military advi
is also asking the u.n. to intervene now even though the syrians are apologizing. nick peyton walsh joins us live from beirut. what is the latest on the conflict between the two countries? it's very troubling. >> reporter: shelling continued overnight according to a senior turkish official but has now ended. there appear to be targeting a military facility in a town. what is key is that this shelling persisted overnight. there had been a belief that the turkish were going to retaliate once to show strength and get the rhetorical backing from its nato allies. but they have continued shelling. this is not all sophisticated military. they're trying to destroy. and we've had reports from syrian opposition activist that's are syrian army casualties as a result of the turkish strikes. >> and a few analysts are suspecting that syria's attack on turkey may have been orchestrated by either the assad regime or the rebels in an attempt to pull turkey into the syrian conflict. do you have any evidence of that? >> reporter: at this point, no. i mean i understand both points of view and the rational to
government, to nato, to the u.n. special envoy to syria. and nato held emergency talks specifically on this issue at their headquarters in brussels. they were invoked under article iv saying any one ally in the military alliance can hold consultations if there's a threat to one of their security. a big question will be what will happen after this. this is the first exchange of fire really that we've heard about. but it's important to note syrian anti-aircraft defenses shot down a turkish military reconnaissance jet last june killing two pilots. the turks were of course furious. all their allies condemned this, but we didn't really see any steps taken in the immediate aftermath of that. the turks are now saying that they will respond to any type of provocation. it will be important to see whether or not more military steps will be taken by the turks. and we're getting reports that they're going to be addressing this very security issue with the syrians at a meeting of the turkish parliament on thursday morning. >> and i'm sure there's intense conversations going on between turkish au
